The little man is finally asleep. He probably got worn out putting his PIC line in his ear and using it as a telephone saying 'Hello? Hello?' Matthew is feeling well and is acting eerily similar to his old self. Nicole was with him for most of the day and I heard about the many walks he took. After dinner he got a little sponge bath. I was on the fence about whether I was going to go ahead with the sponge bath but a botched diaper change (the bad kind) on my part made that decision much easier. I am very glad he is not in any pain at this point. I know that may change quickly.
Nicole met with some of the volunteers from social services to discuss how we can address Matthew's illness with Claire. They gave us a doll with a PIC line in it, a Charlie Brown video, and some other lit for us to read to help us talk to Claire. She is so curious and smart, I know she must have a ton of questions. I have only seen her a couple of times in the past few days. I sure miss Claire.
Please keep hoping.
